LeBron James’ furthers brand power in China’ with controversial remarks

The face of the NBA has been careful not to upset the Chinese – going so far as to call out Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey for the timing of his pro-Hong Kong protesters tweet days before the Lakers and Brooklyn Nets traveled to China for two preseason games. James also said earlier this week that “we do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative things that come with that too,” and “I also don’t think every issue should be everybody’s problem.”

…China is good to James, and that’s one reason he came off looking like an apologist for an authoritarian regime that does not value human rights or freedom of speech.

James came off quite clear that profit outweighs all else.
